Our MPhys in Physics with Computing allows you to combine the study of physics with key aspects of computing and mathematics to develop a powerful skillset.

Recent placements have included roles in fibre-optic oil well monitoring and applications of high temperature superconductors and have involved companies and research facilities such as: IBM (UK) Ltd, British Gas, Siemens AG (Germany), Rutherford Appleton Laboratories, FZ Jülich (Germany), Institut Laue Langevin Grenoble (France).

Gravitational wave detection, imaging black holes, controlling large experiments, modelling complex systems to mars rovers and space travel all rely on computational physics and data science. Indeed, there is no area of modern physics where state-of-the-art computing is not important. The toolbox of a computational physicist includes a firm grounding in physics itself supported by numerical analysis, computational modelling, mathematical data science, hardware control, big data analysis, and artificial intelligence. 

Our Physics with Computing degree will provide a solid understanding of core physics with an emphasis on theory, and on the formulation and solving of physics problems using mathematical data science and computing. 

In addition to the core physics course you will also be able develop skills in relevant aspects of computer science such as data structures, algorithm design, artificial intelligence, big data, and optimisation as well embedded systems. The combined skillsets of physics, computing and mathematics are not only a satisfying combination in their own right, but they also develop a set of skills highly sought-after in both research and industry.

More programs from the university

We offer a fantastic range of undergraduate courses as well as a comprehensive range of foundation courses and the International Foundation Programme.

Every undergraduate course has the option to undertake a placement year, which involves a year working in industry either in the UK or overseas. Some courses also offer the option to study abroad at an overseas university.

There are various Bachelor’s degrees available depending on your chosen course, including:

  • Bachelor of Arts (BA)
  • Bachelor of Science (BSc)
  • Bachelor of Engineering (BEng)
  • Bachelor of Architecture (BArch)
  • Master’s in Science (MSci)
  • Master’s in Engineering (MEng)
  • Master’s in Chemistry (MChem)
  • Master’s in Planning (MPlan)


For more information on all our courses and the opportunities associated with them, visit our undergraduate study pages.

We offer a range of postgraduate qualifications at our Loughborough and London campuses, including taught master’s programmes and doctoral qualifications.

Taught programmes:

Our taught programmes include postgraduate certificates (PGCert) worth 120 credits, postgraduate diplomas (PGDip) worth 150 credits and 180 credit master’s degrees, such as MSc, MA and MBA qualifications where you will complete a final research or a work-based project.

Research programmes:

We offer a wide range of doctoral qualifications across our schools, departments and institutes. These include:

  • PhD
  • EngD
  • PhD by Practice
  • PhD in Creative Writing


A PhD or EngD is the highest academic qualification that you can achieve. Your research must make a significant, original contribution to new knowledge, building on your critical appreciation of existing knowledge of the subject.
